Join me in this solo episode as I share my journey the last few weeks of beginning to work through past trauma and suppressed emotion. As part of my cancer treatment, my doctor really impressed the importance of working through any emotional trauma. I detail what I am currently learning and doing to address both the emotional AND physiological effects of trauma and suppressed emotions. I also share the immediate impact I have already noticed from this work and share my newfound sense of grace and compassion for myself.

Personal Ponderings

Holistic Lifestyle with Leigh Ann Lindsey
2020 Alignment
2020 marked the beginning of a new tradition. To kick off the new year I booked a one night stay at a local hotel to reflect on 2019 and set my intentions, life shifts, goals and biggest dreams for the year to come. The 12 hours of complete solitude gave me the space and mental quiet I needed to dive deep into the swirling waves of thoughts and emotions that come with that start of a new year.
2019 Reflections - Holistic Lifestyle with Leigh Ann Lindsey
2019 Reflections
What. A. Year. 2019 was overflowing with changes personally, professionally, mentally, spiritually, emotionally...the progress of this year is highlighted even more by the state I was in at the beginning of it. 2019 began the same as the previous two years had...in a daze. Confused, foggy, mentally and physically exhausted and completely at a loss as to what the next steps in life were supposed to be. I felt suspended in time.

My 80 Year Old Guru
So often in my journaling time I revisit the past, sometimes going back to specific situations or conversations years ago. I'll redo that one argument in my head with all the new information I have. I'll not waste my time on that guy because NO, he didn't treat me the way I deserve. I'll not let certain people push me around with their words because I was too timid or lacked the confidence to stand firm in my worth.

Holistic Recipes

Vegan Waffles
Vegan Spelt Cocoa Waffles
Sometimes you just need a nice fluffy waffle on a cozy morning to go with your coffee. I love these because they are just chocolate-y enough to make your taste buds dance, but not so sweet that they leave you feeling sick to your stomach afterwards. As a plus, they are full of healthy ingredients like banana, chia seeds, coconut oil and oat milk!
Vegan Pumpkin Coffee Cake
Vegan Pumpkin Coffee Cake
I am not a big pumpkin fan, but this pumpkin coffee cake has just the lightest hint of pumpkin with an amazing crunchy, pecan streusel topping. Flour can be replaced with alternative options to make the recipe gluten-free!
Avocado Hummus
Avocado Hummus
I can get pretty picky when it comes to hummus. It can’t be too grainy or too chalky and don’t even try and offer me just plain ol’ chickpea hummus… Hands down this is my favorite hummus recipe. Such an easy and quick recipe to make for a quick snack or to bring to parties!
